VoxEU: A call to action

Here’s an excerpt from the open letter signed by leading economists and blogging post-docs alike:

This is a once-in-a-lifetime crisis. Trust among financial institutions is disappearing; fear may spread. Last week’s US experience showed that saving one bank at a time won’t work. A systemic response is needed and in Europe this means an EU-led initiative to recapitalise the banking sector. Unless European leaders immediately unite to address this crisis before it spirals out of control, they may find themselves fighting over how best to salvage the aftermath.

I forgot to publish this on Tuesday. Better late than never.
